The Elliotts Foundry Jacket Range Explained

 

Selecting The Best Foundry Jackets For You & Your Workers' Needs

 

At Elliotts, we pride ourselves on our ability to work with our customers to create what they want and how they want it. 

We pride ourselves on our ability to listen to and taken on board customer feedback. Our extensive range of foundry gears is as a result of decades of feedback from our customers.

Here is a quick guide to help you pick what foundry jacket suits you and your employees best: 

 

 

Centre Closure Foundry JacketCentre Closure Jackets

Centre Closure Jackets have the front opening centred. The closure is a 50mm FR Hook and Loop closure with press studs positioned 100mm apart. The closure is very secure and does not leave any openings when bending down. Design options include:

Standard – Fully aluminised (back and front) with an action back for greater movement. This design in a generous fit and provides the wearer with 360 degrees of protection.

 

Vented – Fully aluminised (back and front) with a horizontal vent across the shoulders for additional ventilation. The overlapping of fabric reduces the chance of sparks or splash entering the vent. The “Vented” option is more suited when the front of the body faces the hazard.

 

Combo – Aluminised front, sleeves and rear shoulders with a Proban cotton back. The “Combo” design reduces weight and includes a vented back for additional breathability. The “Combo” design is ideal when hazards face the front of the body.

 

These come in lengths of 800mm, 1000mm and 1300mm.

 

Side Closure Foundry JacketSide Closure Jackets

Side Closure Jackets have the opening off centre to the side of the front of the jacket. The side closure has proven to be more durable, as the off-centre opening is not exposed to the same levels of a centre closure. The closure is a 50mm FR Hook and Loop closure with press studs positioned 100mm apart. The closure is very secure and does not leave any openings when crouching down. Design options include:

 

Standard – Fully aluminised (back and front) with an action back for greater movement. This design in a generous fit and provides the wearer with 360 degrees of protection.

 

Vented – Fully aluminised (back and front) with a horizontal vent across the shoulders for additional ventilation. The overlapping of fabric reduces the chance of sparks or splash entering the vent. The “Vented” option is more suited when the front of the body faces the hazard.

 

Combo – Aluminised front, sleeves and rear shoulders with a Proban cotton back. The “Combo” design reduces weight and includes a vented back for additional breathability. The “Combo” design is ideal when hazards face the front of the body.

 

These come in lengths of 910mm and 1270mm.

 

Tailored Jackets for Each Worker

Providing high quality Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for your workers should be first priority. Oversized or undersized jackets will affect the amount of protection workers get when dealing with hazardous operations. That is why we suggest getting the right type and length of foundry jacket for each worker, so you don’t need to worry about unexpected injuries.
